    Default NTs and poetry...

    Based upon the discussion about SPs and poetry in another thread, I wish to ask NTs a similar question:

    Do you like poetry?

    Now personally, I don't like it. I really don't see the point of writing things in meter when you can write it in prose. I don't see why poetry is considered more imaginative than writing in prose, after all, most fictional stories are written in prose.

    yes I do.
    I have always wondered about this. In poetry I seek to understand, to grasp and to reveal. I pay relatively little attention to form. Would this be opposite to S's?

    I would say so. I have a hard time reading poetry because I'm involved with the form. That's why prose is so much easier to read when you're looking for meaning.

    No poetry for me, but I have an uncanny knack for knowing EXACTLY what an artist is talking about in song lyrics.

    I am terrible at that. I also have trouble comprehending text I read even in prose. I sometimes have to think about it.

    However, I am very good at creating my own meaning when I listen to classical music based on the rhythm. And this is why pure music becomes so abstract.

    No. I like literature in general and I read a lot of stuff by contemporary writers, but no poetry.

    I'm not really into poetry, but I like the symbolism within it.

    Oh, and I'm a big fan of Dorothy Parker's poetry. . . but mainly because they are more like witty quips.

    (Hey Uber, it'd be helpful to title your threads something that has to do with the OP, so people know what it's about before they click. Just a suggestion.)

    When in doubt. . . it's always about drugs.
